The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is meant to bring spiritual strength, comfort, and healing to those who are ill, elderly, or facing surgery. It may be celebrated individually when a priest visits the home of the sick person. Please call the Rectory at 718-359-0417 to request a priest to visit and anoint the ill person. It may also be celebrated communally within the context of Mass. The sacrament is celebrated communally at St. Andrew Avellino Parish in October and March.
